Welcome to Private Testing Center
Tennessee ranks #16 among the 50 states for new HIV diagnoses in 2015.
Total U.S. cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis are higher than ever. And rates are climbing fast, according to new data released this week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with a 19 percent increase in syphilis cases between 2014 and 2015, alone.
While Nashville’s metro area has an infection rate slightly less than the national average, Davidson County as a whole has a much higher rate than the rest of the country for the top three STDs.
Public Health experts point to many factors driving the cause of the spike. A lack of awareness about proper safe sex practices and a casual attitude on STDs is common. Many people feel that since most STDs are treatable and many are curable, that it’s not that big a deal. However, this is only true if the diseases are properly diagnosed. Left untreated or unnoticed, many STDs can have serious side effects, up to and including death.
The diseases are transmitted from an infected person during genital, oral or anal sexual contact. Some sexually transmitted infections can also be transmitted from an untreated mother to her baby during pregnancy or during childbirth.
Besides abstinence, the two best ways to prevent the spread of STDs are proper use of a condom and getting tested regularly. Private Testing Center aims to make testing for STDs affordable, easy and discreet. We maintain over 2,000 locations across the United States, including 12 locations within a 50 mile radius of Nashville, TN.

Private Testing Center strives to offer affordable, discreet and convenient testing in an effort to prevent the spread of STDs and HIV.
The CDC estimates there are 20 million new cases of STDs in the U.S. each year, with 50% of those new cases falling on young people ages 15 to 24.
In one study, they examined 1,000 adolescents and found that 1 in 4 of them had at least 1 common STD, and 15% were infected with more then one. Most participants in the study showed no symptoms and didn’t even realize they were infected. Even among people who only had one partner in their lifetimes, 1 in 5 still had an STD — but of those with three or more partners, 50% had an STD.
The good news is that many STDs are curable, and those without a cure are treatable. You owe it to yourself and others to find answers and protect yourself. Private Testing Center has 1500 locations nationwide in one of the largest laboratory networks anywhere in the world. Same day appointments are available with scheduling as soon as 15 minutes after calling. The average lab visit lasts just 15 minutes and some results are available the following day.
